Zoomlion marks 10 years anniversary of keeping Ghana clean



Zoomlion Company limited, a subsidiary of Jospong Group of Companies, has launched its ten year anniversary celebrations.

Activities marking the anniversary include gala football matches, free health screening of residents in Tamale and a parade with a float along some principal streets of Tamale.

As a prelude to the official launch, workers of Zoomlion, led by management paid courtesy calls on the revered chiefs in Tamale, who encouraged them to intensify their efforts at keeping the region clean.
In its ten years of operation in the waste management sector, the company, despite monumental challenges and a bad press in 2014 and 2015, nonetheless managed to accomplish a lot and they run the gamut from an environmental sanitation and waste management institute, waste transfer stations, sewage and waste water treatment facility, a plastic recycling and waste bins production facility to a resource recovery from waste through the establishment of waste sorting and compost facility.

Speaking at the launch, the northern regional manager of Zoomlion, Emmanuel Volsuuri, on behalf of the Group chairman, thanked workers for their immense contribution to the growth and development of the company.
Mr Volsuuri also commended workers for keeping faith with Zoomlion during its difficult moments and commended the company’s cleaners, janitors, drivers, mechanics, supervisors and monitors for trying their best to keep Ghana clean at all times.

Touching on the theme, ‘Driving Impactful Waste Management in Ghana and Beyond’, Mr Volsuuri assured the people of the north of Zoomlion’s unreserved efforts in delivering excellent and satisfactory services to its customers.

He, however, called for attitudinal change towards the environment, saying indiscriminate littering of the environment poses a serious threat to the health of citizens.

Other speakers at the celebrations included the board chairman of Zoomlion northern region, Alhaji Sayinu Mohammed Hardi who urged workers to exercise patience with management because the company is currently going through some restructuring.
The Northern Regional Director of the Youth Employment Authority (YEA), Mr. Tanko Abdul Rashid said government has invested a lot in infrastructure and will want to keep it tidy. He also assured Zoomlion of government’s continued partnership in keeping Ghana clean. The agency, he said, will continue to collaborate with Zoomlion to help reduce unemployment in the region.

Mr. Abdallah Abubakari, the northern regional minister who cut the tape for the launch in Tamale, observed that Zoomlion has been able in the last ten years to take a front-line role as far as sanitation in the country is concerned and encouraged the company not relent in its efforts to keep the environment tidy.

According to the minister, apart from government institutions, Zoomlion is a private company with workers across the country adding that it is a mark of a serious business entity.
